Champions ...in acrylic on canvas

A painting commemorating the Dulwich Hamlet team lifting the Ryman Division One South Trophy at the end of the 2012/13 season, was unveiled on Saturday 26th April 2014. Club captain Peter Adeniyi performed the task in the Hamlet boardroom before a handful of distinguished guests.  In a short speech Peter recounted how he was first brought to Dulwich through Martin Eede, who was present.  His second spell at Dulwich, this time under Gavin Rose, followed a trek round various non-league clubs in the South East. Yet in his entire career, he had not witnessed anything like the support seen at Champion Hill these last few years.

The painting by Hannah Dunphy is entitled ‘Champions 2013’ and is based on a photograph by Mike Urban of the Brixton Buzz website. It was commissioned by the Hamlet Historian magazine. Our grateful thanks to Chairman Jack Payne for giving us permission to display it at the club.
